Publisher's Summary

This unique collection of personal and professional letters, daily newspaper columns, radio shows, speeches, manuscripts, and photographs creates an intimate portrait of America's original "nasty woman".
Eleanor Roosevelt is considered by many to be the most fascinating, accomplished, and admired woman in American history. While she is best known as a politician, a diplomat, a humanitarian, a UN delegate, an activist, a feminist, and first lady, she was also a prolific reporter and writer who changed the role of women in government. She wrote 27 books and more than 8,000 columns and delivered more than 75 speeches a year.
Organized into sections like Becoming Eleanor; Women, Work, & Politic; and The UN and Human Rights, Eleanor Roosevelt: In Her Words collects the most fascinating writing from her life - much of which is just as relevant today as it was decades ago. She gives advice to women in politics, explains why she is a Democrat, and crusades against intolerance. Also included is political commentary on the New Deal, World War II, and the UN; memos to FDR; and intimate letters to Lorena Hickok.
Illustrated with dozens of photographs and documents, this is the perfect gift for history buffs, feminists, social activists, and anyone who is curious about the Roosevelt family.
